Building collapses in Shanghai

At around 5:30am on Saturday June 27, an unoccupied building still under construction at Lianhuanan Road in the Minxing district of Shanghai city toppled over. One worker was killed. According to information, a 70 meter section of the flood prevention wall in nearby Dianpu River could have had something to do with this building collapse.

It is not breaking news, but the high-resolution photos are really amazing...

(clic on the picture for the whole gallery - it is amazing)

Note: since access to Blogger keeps blocked in China, uploading pictures remains a difficult and time consuming task - start the proxy filter, bear the substantially slower connection that it brings... That is why I am not writing so often lately, and if things don't change, this blog will be put on stand-by until better times - in the meantime, why don't you follow me on Facebook?
